About this product
- DescriptionEdward Burra (1905-76) was an English painter who is best kwn for his paintings of the seedy underworld of urban life. Yet, as this fascinating new mograph on his work reveals, his interests were much broader, incorporating landscape and still-life paintings, stage designs, book illustration and watercolours. Somewhat neglected by histories of modern art because his singular vision was often at odd with the mainstream art world, his work is w due for a re-appraisal. Published to accompany a major exhibition of his paintings and drawings at Pallant House Gallery, this important book represents the first full-scale mograph on Edward Burra and reproduces 100 key paintings alongside drawings and a range of fascinating contextual material. It positions Burra as a major figure in the history of 20th-century art, placing his work alongside that of the German Expressionists and other important contemporaries and influences. Long awaited, this book will be widely welcomed by all those with an interest in the art of this fascinating maverick and documenter of modern life.
